Christian, It seems is not what I was indoctrinated.

Post by Geod Manson » Mon Mar 09, 2020 10:46 am

I had "religion/theocracy? shoved down my throat from the time that I can remember.
From the age of 7 I hated being forced to go to church many times each week , because I had figured out in my aspie brain that there was no difference between the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy, Santa clause and the jesus/god character.
What I was being taught made no sense to me.
It seems that what was being shoved down my throat all those years really isn't what a "Christian" is.

In the context Rom presents this material. I can see using the BIBLE as a teaching tool. Especially when so many people believe that BIBLE(what does the sign "BIBLE" mean?) to be more than just a teaching tool. And if one will talk about the BIBLE, many people will listen.

Hierarchy.
46 Minutes and three seconds long. I think it's worth watching.

Supposedly, the material comprising the Bible was not taken literally by the early Christians, and that later the Church compelled people under pain of death/torture that they must believe it to be literally true. I also think there's something to the notion that the Bible is a law book using different language that parallels legal/commercial verbiage.

Numerous judges attend seminary, I'm told, even the occasional prosecutor. It reminds me of a scene in the film "Minority Report". When asked where he came from the prosecutor [Colin Farrell] tells the chief [Tom Cruise] that he came from seminary. There's definitely more to the Bible than its religious veneer.
